A friend of mine suggested flaming skulls would sell well in our city. I thought he was onto something, and I don’t go for girly-girly stuff, so I thought “Aha! 8-bit skulls would work great in beads!”
Flames are pretty hard to do small scale, so I opted for the less manly and more feminine skull and heart combo.
I like how these turned out and want to do more. They have a kind of “sugar skull” delicate look to them which I find quite appealing.
